The first two photos are the same two sets just switched around I made these for Privateer Press a while back . The third shot is the start of a photo set I am making for myself with a 40K theme . I will post more photo's as they come .

Here is some more steps on making a small photo sets . You can also use this to make terrain I hope this helps you out .
[Thumb - IMG_1588.JPG]
Cut your stone work with a scalpel .

[Thumb - IMG_1585.JPG]
Now cut your cross sections .

[Thumb - IMG_1593.JPG]
It will be hard to see you cuts so Grab a pencil .

[Thumb - IMG_1622.JPG]
using a pencil you will make those cuts wider . A pencile works best because the graphite acts as a lubricant .

[Thumb - IMG_1595.JPG]
Now you need to add texture to the stone work . I am using kitty litter .

[Thumb - IMG_1596.JPG]
You can mash it in with your hands .

[Thumb - IMG_1605.JPG]
I made this tool to fit the size bricks I made .

[Thumb - IMG_1609.JPG]
Take the tool and add depth to the stones .

[Thumb - IMG_1617.JPG]
This is the effect you will get .

[Thumb - IMG_1619.JPG]
So the next step is painting .
